There are hotel wedding fairs and then there is The Merchant Hotel’s Wedding Showcase!
Brides-to-be dreaming about their princess moment sweeping up the iconic steps of The Merchant in their wedding gown with the love of their life at their side should get to the Rita Duffy suite on Sunday 9th March between 2-5pm.
The five-star hotel will showcase its range of exclusive bridal packages as well as inspiring brides and grooms with a fashion show by Style Academy model agency showing wedding gowns, menswear and flower girl dresses from Petticoat Lane, Forever Bridal, Focus Menswear and Red Grooms.
The Sugahfix gals recently worked on the photoshoot for the Wedding Showcase and we have to say it was pretty special shooting in such a luxurious setting. Our model Sarah even got congratulated by people passing by the front steps – gotta love Belfast people for being so friendly!
Five star fabulousness is rarely free but admission to this chic wedding showcase is FOC (yay!) and couples can enjoy a lavish champagne reception and canapés while The Merchant Hotel’s event team will be on hand to guide couples through booking a stylish wedding at the luxurious hotel.
The wedding showcase will also feature some of Northern Ireland’s leading wedding and honeymoon suppliers including florists, DJs, photographers, travel agents, musicians, hairdressers, cake designers and much more. A must-see for brides-to-be.
